    I have a tendency to fold my hands in front of me, or hold my hands to my mouth (think cutsy-girly). But I also have a few "power poses" when I need to exert myself..
    But they definitely came from somewhere; I didn't stand that way a couple of years back.

    Another good Catholic Existentialist is Gabriel Marcel. I'm utterly convinced the man was INFJ, just based on the manner he presents his thoughts.



    BTW Kyrielle, I find myself doing those poses as well....except for the last one.

    I totally agree. A few years ago at a writers' workshop *everyone* would gather in my room during my "down" time. I don't know if they assumed I was an extravert because of my behavior during the day or if they thought somehow I was "trapped" in my room because I use a power wheelchair for mobility. (Actually, I'm much more mobile in my chair than most "walkies"--unless stairs are involved, lol). By the end of the week I was depleted and *very* cranky.:steam:
    It's a blessing...and a curse.

    I've been in situations like this before. Telling some people "I would just like to be alone for a while" usually ends up with their feelings being hurt.

    Sometimes you just have to pretend like your sick and say you're going to go lay down. Usually people avoid me out of fear of getting sick too. Yes, it's lying, but desperate times call for desperate measures.

    Whenever my ISFJ mom (who loves showing off every inch our house) brings guests into my room, I'm definitely forced to chase them out with my bat.

    Can't--won't--do that. It's a gimp thing, I think; people already see me as more fragile than I am so I do the "toughing it out" thing way too much, to my detriment. I like the bat idea, though. *Then* they wouldn't think I was fragile. Still, someone might get more than their feelings hurt.

    I do this often. Here's a few examples of poses I often imitate in various circumstances:






    Feel free to post your own examples!
    Yes now that you mention it, I find myself doing this often:



    Sorry, couldn't resist

    Hey no problem, come to think of it - I find myself doing that pose quite often as well.

    You are pretty oblivious to the world around you when you are thinking but never fail to notice details that have a personal meaning for you.
    ex:you can hear your name in a conversation a mile away .
    Also, you can seem very annoying or clingy to people by giving them advice or worrying about them too much.
    Sometimes I feel like I'm "on Mercury"-

    So, has anyone else been told that they are the most practical, down to earth person they know, yet you think they're totally crazy but when you talk to other people about it they agree? Or is this just me?
